15 months ago, my cousin-in-law, Alicia, who had just had her beautiful little boy Jack, told me about this cool website where you can buy diapers online and have them delivered to your door for a price that was very comparable to Costco.
At the time, we knew we were expecting (not that it was twins) and Seth was a few months short of potty training. It didn't seem like any big deal to me as we visited Costco often and could always just throw a box of diapers in the cart.
Well, then there was this flurry of multiple babies and many, many, MANY multiples of diapers. We had boxes and boxes stored in the shed. We didn't need to worry about diapers. We had PLENTY! In fact, we were worried about the glue on the diapers going bad in the heat of the shed (tee hee, remember that Bambi?).
Then of course you already know about all my math and the crunching and the decision to switch to cloth as much as possible. I did some research and started looking for places to buy cloth diapers and I came across... Diapers.com!
I had never even considered them as I figured they were all disposables.
Doing my homework, I started doing some comparison shopping online and found that Amazon actually had the gPants and Wal-Mart had the cloth inserts for cheaper. So I was trying to figure out if it would be better to order from the other sites or at Diapers.com with the first time user $10 coupon.
Then, I noticed that Diapers.com has a price match guarantee! All you do is click on it, enter the link to where the cheaper item is and they discount the matching item in your cart!
Coolio. Now, what other deals could I get? They also have a 10% off pretty much everything else deal for first time customers. So, I added baby food to my cart, but it didn't seem to work. I emailed customer service and they responded in 20 minutes or so that, alas, baby food doesn't qualify, but they would give me another $10 off credit for the hassle.
So, I got what could've been $93.26 worth of stuff for $61.26!! Yay! Love it!
Plus, it literally was on my doorstep the next morning.
I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone!
If you need anything for your baby, and I mean anything you can buy at Target, Wal-Mart, or Babies R Us, they have it. Food, formula, diapers (including cloth!), clothes, toys, books, gadgets, accessories, ANYTHING! AND you can spend as much time as you want looking at everything and deciding.
Plus, use the code on the top right of my page, MADS8919, and you get $10 off your first order, I get $5 off my next order and then you can recommend it to all of your friends and do the same.
Then again, maybe you have plenty of time to do your shopping.
I know for me nowadays, to get anywhere, it takes at least two adults to wrangle three small children during that perfect "not time to eat, not time to sleep" period of the day, into the car and then when we get there, it is a ticking time bomb before we NEED TO GO.
I did take them all to Costco by myself... once...
I almost had a panic attack in the frozen food aisle when I came to my senses and realized what I was doing. What would I have done if one or more of them had melted down? Walked out, abandoning my cart full of food, with one baby strapped to me, one in a car seat and pulling a 3 year old behind me?
Luckily, they all did great and we even stopped for hot dogs, but I don't think I'll be doing that again anytime soon. Thank goodness for online shopping... especially Diapers.com. :)
